Former Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik has revealed an ongoing feud with one of his I'm A Celeb campmates. The 59 year old appeared in the 2010 series alongside celebrities such as Stacey Solomon, Shaun Ryder, Alison Hammond and Bond girl Britt Ekland.

But it was a well-spoken veteran actor that caused Lembit the most trouble after his time in the Australian wilderness. In an exclusive chat with The Sun on behalf of Instant Casinos, Lembit revealed: "The ones that annoyed me the most were some of the celebrities, like Nigel Havers, who walked out because he couldn't take the heat and spent the last decade rubbishing me.

"We've not been on each other's Christmas lists since 2010. Yeah, Nigel Havers was two-faced. He pretended to be my friend. I only realised what he really thought when I saw the show after I came out. He considered me to be mad, but frankly, I was making his tea for him."

"I was his tea boy. And the gratitude I got shown was to him for him to stab me in the back when he came out. That's regrettable, and I would point out that I outlasted him in the jungle, and as far as I'm concerned, I win.

"Nigel, you keep trying, but you can never take that away from me, Nigel. You walked out of the stage."

In 2018, Nigel, 72, joked on Good Morning Britain that he would have killed Lembit had he not quit the show. The ex-Corrie actor remarked: "If I'd stayed there I would have killed somebody, his name was Lembit Opik and I was just about to murder him."

Lembit was the next celeb to leave the jungle following former footballer's wife Sheryl Gascoigne.
